Measure, Track and Optimize your Icegram messages with Analytics feature

Without data analytics, companies are blind and deaf, wandering out onto the Web like deer on a freeway.

I'm sure neither of us wants to be that deer that gets crushed on a freeway…

After creating Icegram – the best WordPress plugin to convert visitors to customers and keep them engaged, it was obvious that we needed a way to track what campaigns are working and what needs to be tweaked.

Analytics let you track, measure and optimize campaigns

If you can measure what messages people are seeing, what is getting clicked on and how your overall strategy is working, you can tweak it to perform better.

Which is why we created an Analytics feature in Icegram.

How to get Icegram's Analytics feature

Icegram Analytics feature tracks and reports impressions and conversions for each campaign and message. If you didn't want to be like that blind and deaf deer running on a freeway, waiting to be crushed; or in other words; if you want to know how well a campaign is performing, or which message converts better; this is a must have feature for you.

This ‘Analytics' feature is present in Icegram's premium plans – Max as well as Pro.

Using Icegram Analytics

Once you've activated either of Icegram's premium plugin, the plugin will start tracking statistics automatically. Whenever a visitor sees or clicks on any Icegram message, it will be all tracked.

Statistics snapshot
  • An impression is when a message is shown to the visitor.
  • A conversion is when the visitor clicks on a call to action button.
  • Conversion rate is percentage of visitors who clicked on a CTA button.

Where do I find these statistics?

So you may be wondering where to find these stats?

There are mainly 3 places where analytics results show up.

Overall analytics show on campaigns / messages list pages

If you want to compare different campaigns, you can get their stats on the campaigns listing page. This is great overview, because you can quickly identify the winning campaigns!

All Message List Snapshot

Similar stats are available on the Messages listing page within Icegram.

Single Campaign analytics show on Edit Campaign page

Statistics for each individual campaign also show on Campaign edit page. They show how many messages from this campaign were shown, clicked on and the conversion rate. This is a great aggregate analysis of all messages you are running in a campaign.

Individual Message analytics show on Edit Message page

If you wanted to track how well a specific message is doing, go to Message edit page. (WP Admin – Icegram – Messages – click on a message to edit)
